Co-reference Resolution of Elided Subjects and Possessive Pronouns in Spanish-English Statistical Machine Translation


Rios, Annette; Tuggener, Don (2017). Co-reference Resolution of Elided Subjects and Possessive Pronouns in Spanish-English Statistical Machine Translation. In: 15th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics, Valencia, Spain, 3 April 2017 - 7 April 2017, 657-662.

Abstract

This paper presents a straightforward method to integrate co-reference information into phrase-based machine translation to address the problems of i) elided subjects and ii) morphological underspecification of pronouns when translating from pro-drop languages. We evaluate the method for the language pair Spanish-English and find that translation quality improves with the addition of co-reference information.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
